Have a look at this website on the day of the walk to see if there’s an update.

Join us for this special Halloween walk in the dark on Wednesday evening. After a short journey to Cranfield village where the walk will start, we will continue  on the National Route 51 of the National Cycle Network towards the Forest of Marston Vale; through the wooded Marston Trift to the neighbouring village of Marston Moretaine; ending there by the 15th century church of St Mary. This is a beautiful ancient church with an unusual detached tower that perhaps served once as a watchtower, or a place of refuge. A very special event not to be mised!-)

Light candles with us in the church graveyard for the upcoming day of “all souls” and soak up the magical atmosphere of the church lit up at night.  

Did you know? Halloween is on October 31st, the last day of the Celtic calendar. It was originally a pagan holiday, honoring the dead. Halloween was referred to as All Hallows Eve and dates back to over 2000 years ago. See also: http://www.halloween-website.com/history.htm
